Business Development
• Secure business for the 7.5MW Drivetrain test bed, 15MW Drivetrain test bed, and eGRID.
• Cultivate new customers and maintain relationships with existing customers.
• Engage with industry and government agencies to ensure Clemson is a world leader in the energy sector and well-positioned to provide testing services and execute successful research grants and contracts.
• Engage with other CURI personnel to develop strategies for future business and funded research.
• Identify significant opportunities, and build collaborative teams to write successful grants, execute projects, and meet deliverables while creating new knowledge and scholarship.

Requirements:
• Master’s degree in ECE or ME
• Certification as a P.E. or in Project Management preferred
• 15-20 years industrial or lab operations experience, energy sector preferred
• 5+ years management experience
• Skilled in project management and strategic planning
• Understands safety and quality

• Have an advocate’s belief in the vision of Clemson, CURI, and the Energy Innovation Center

Why consider this opportunity?
• Clemson University is comprised of a unique and accomplished student body. It is one of the most selective public research universities in the United States.
• Clemson is at the cutting edge of higher education, research, economic growth and innovation.
• The future of CURI is bright. It has made solid progress in its research, education and engagement efforts and activities. In addition, CURI’s faculty, staff and students have had significant successes.
• Key decisions for CURI begin with leadership and operations. The CURI strategic plan will provide this leadership with high-level institutional priorities for (1) research, (2) education, and (3) engagement.
• The CURI Campus is located in the desirable town of Charleston, SC. However, the CURI culture reflects Clemson University’s main campus culture, yet with an entrepreneurial component.

Company Description
The Clemson University Restoration Institute (CURI) campus in North Charleston, SC, is the site of the Zucker Family Graduate Education Center, the Dominion Energy Innovation Center, and the Warren Lasch Conservation Center.

The Zucker Family Graduate Education Center is home to Clemson’s graduate academic programs related to engineering and computing. The center provides graduate programs (Masters and Ph.D.) in areas including electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering; computer science; and digital production arts. An undergraduate capstone design semester has been recently initiated, and the campus also has an active summer intern program. Currently, nearly 70 part-time and full-time graduate students are enrolled in classes at Zucker.

The Dominion Energy Innovation Center is the focal point for industry-based research and testing projects related to energy conversion and grid integration.

The Warren Lasch Conservation Center is the home of Clemson’s programs to conserve historically significant objects, particularly those that are exposed to extreme environments, such as those found in the coastal Charleston area. Emphases include corrosion and conservation of materials, such as metals, textiles, and wood, and archiving and curating the projects from an archaeological and anthropological perspective. The US civil war era submarine, the H.L. Hunley, is perhaps the most widely recognized project on-going at the center.
